Now onto my project.....
I made a pillow very 1st one using acetate and my cameo!
After cutting out the pillow box and carefully folding the score lines I attached a piece of card stock the the outside. The edge of the card stock on the pillow box was ....blah so I decided to again try something new and sew a trim using some Trendy Twine
Look at how cool it turned out!!!!
Here is a closeup of the sentiment~ from Jaded Blossom's Got Candy set
it goes perfect with the "kiss" I cut out using my cameo.
I wrapped some aluminum foil around it to give it a more realistic look, added some glossy accents to the "chocolate" and tied it all together with some more Trendy Twine :)

I hope you have enjoyed my Valentine's  project!!
